Original iPhone and older iMacs, Mac Mini and MacBooks discontinued
Apple has announced that as of June 11th 2013 the company will be officially ending its support for the original iPhone that graced our shelves back in 2006.
Apple will be classing the original, first generation iPhone as “vintage” as of June which means that the 2G iPhone will no longer get support and stores will stop acknowledging the handset so if there are any issues with your iPhone you’ll need to seek a repair through a third party.
A leaked report showing that Apple is planning on discontinuing and disregarding future support for a few devices appeared online recently and top of the list is the iconic original iPhone; the smartphone that started a revolution.
Apple will also be rendering the 2005 Mac Mini, 2007 iMacs, the AirPort Express Base Station and a handful of MacBooks to the history books as far as support is concerned.
This means that post June 11th, if one of the aforementioned gadgets goes haywire then there is no official Apple support or parts available and it will be an enforced upgrade for you!
